Almond Butter Cups

It is that time of year again.  With valentines day around the corner the stores are filled with tempting candy.  With difficulty resisting temptation I set out to make a guilt free paleo valentine’s day treat!

The almond butter cup is like a peanut butter cup, but without the sugar or the guilt!

You will need a mold of some sort to build your candies in.  You can buy a chocolate mold or simply use a mini cupcake pan lined with cup cake liners.

In a sauce pan mix 1/4 cup coconut oil, 1/4 cup raw cacao, 2 tablespoons honey, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 2 tablespoons coconut cream, and a pinch of salt.  Make sure to use cacao and not coco powder.  Also, look for coconut cream and not milk.  I found mine with other baking ingredients in a can at Trader Joes.  Allow mixture to simmer until fully blended continuously stirring, about three minutes.  Place a layer of chocolate on the bottom.  Allow layer to freeze (about 10 minute.)  Then layer almond butter of your choice and a top layer of chocolate.  Top with cacao nibs if desired.  Freeze another 10 minute and enjoy!
